What are the drugs that cause the biggest problems in Virginia?
Addiction facilities in Virginia deal with every kind of addiction and abuse problem. As with every state, alcohol is a big problem. But cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine are the worst.
Cocaine gives a feeling of strength and euphoria. But it also raises the blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate. After about 20 minutes, the drug starts to wear off. The person then feels depressed, anxious and paranoid.
Most users either take some kind of sedative drug to help with those side effects, or they continue to take more cocaine. Sometimes that goes on for days. Cocaine, sedatives, cocaine, sedatives – on and on.
After using cocaine for a while, the person starts to feel depressed and anxious all the time. They can also hallucinate and commonly feel like bugs are crawling under their skin. And they get extremely paranoid. In fact, it makes them kind of crazy.
Methamphetamine – which has similar effects – is also very common, as is heroin.
If you know someone who needs help with cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine, there are several Virginia addiction help centers that can get you off the drugs and set you up to stay off them forever.

Prescription Drug Addiction in Virginia
Many people who are dependent on or addicted to prescription drugs come to Virginia addiction facilities for help. They are usually using painkillers like OxyContin – which is known as ‘legal heroin’- or Percocet and Dilaudid. These are all very addictive, and they are very hard to stop taking.
Sedatives, tranquilizers and anti-anxiety drugs – benzodiazepines – are also common, as are so-called ‘study drugs’ like Ritalin and Adderall. In addition to being prescribed for hyperactivity and attention problems, Ritalin and Adderall are also frequently used by college students to stay awake and focus when studying for exams.
How do people get addicted to prescription drugs?
Some start when they get them from their doctor for an illness, injury, or after surgery. But when the prescriptions run out, they’ve already become addicted.
Others take prescription drugs simply to get high. Young people are often given prescription drugs by their friends, or they get them out of their own parents’ medicine cabinets.

Will an Addiction Help Center Really Change Things?
Of course, there’s no guarantee that an alcoholic or drug addict will stop drinking or taking drugs. But with a good program, their chances are very, very good.
And it doesn’t matter what kind of drinking problem they have – heavy drinking, frequent drinking, binge drinking, or a combination of the three – or what kind of drugs they’re taking, the right addiction help can give them a new start on life.
The drug and alcohol situation in Virginia overall, is pretty serious.
More than one in four high school seniors use drugs, nearly one in three people (of any age) drink alcohol.
Also, while the majority of people in centers that offer addiction help in Virginia were looking for help with marijuana, the next highest category is cocaine. Several thousand people a year go for cocaine addiction help in Virginia.
The next highest drug causing people to go for treatment is heroin, and right below that, is ‘other opiates.’
‘Other opiates’ usually consist of prescription painkillers. Thousands of people a year get addiction help in Virginia for OxyContin addiction, oxycodone addiction, hydrocodone addiction, methadone addiction, Vicodin addiction, and addiction to many other prescription painkillers.
Not everyone starts taking prescription painkillers to get high. Some people are living with chronic pain or had surgery, an injury or an accident and their doctor prescribed the pills for them.
Even those people who take prescription painkillers for a short-time can get addicted, and those who take them for chronic pain certainly never expected to become a drug addict.
One of the worst things about taking OxyContin, for example, for pain is that you need to take more and more to get the same effect as you did when you started taking them. Eventually, they don’t even really work any more. In fact, they can even CAUSE pain.
